Actually, you are all missing the FML here. She used the word 'chaqueta' wich correctly means jacket in Spanish but in Mexican slang, 'chaqueta' means to masturbate. So in all fairness your spanish was correct but while in Mexico you may want to stay with 'Chamarra' instead of 'Chaqueta' when referring to your jacket.

Same here! But the best part about this is that my best friend is mexican and helps me practice my Spanish, and hasn't corrected me' once on this.

Thanks for the warning, dude, I'm currently learning Spanish and didn't realize that (to make matters worse, I live in Texas, so most Spanish speakers here use the Mexican dialect)

I'll have to tell my Spanish teachers about this, cause they've been teaching 'Chaqueta' for a while now.

Folks, pay no attention to this person. They are the person who walks around in four feet of snow in shorts and a t-shirt. In other words, they are the lucky type of minnesotan native
